1  Hooded Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by PixieVal on: September 18, 2014 12:43:55 PM
So my friend is moving away in a few weeks back to the North where she will need warm gear! She loves fall colors and looks beautiful in them as well so I made her this hoodie/scarf for a going away gift for her. I found the pattern here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mother-hood

Im slowly coming out of my creative funk as the baby gets a little older and my homework is tapering off. Im going to try to start posting some stuff on Craftster again as I finish them up.  I always miss this place when I stay away too long.

7  Cabled and Shell Afghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by PixieVal on: January 08, 2014 08:42:17 PM
When a friend of mine was offering up loads of camouflage yarn that she had in her stash for over 8 years for free, I jumped on that. My husband is a hunter and loves camouflage, and I have been promising him a decent sized blanket for years. He is holding up the blanket in the first picture, and he is 5 foot 11 so I think the blanket is an easy 6 feet tall. It was a project of love that I worked on since the summer whenever I had crochet time and he was not around, it was a Christmas surprise, and Id say he was pretty happy!
I have a hard time picking up the detail with the variegated yarn, but Red Heart in the pattern link uses a solid color and you can see the detail better on theirs. This was a super easy pattern that was easy to watch TV and listen to books on tape or talk with friends while you make it.

He is holding the blanket up in this picture

The yarn was all Red Heart Super Saver, and after I finished making the blanket I ended up rubbing conditioner into the whole thing and running it through the washer a few times (without soap) to get it nice and soft and cuddly.
I used this pattern:

8  Doctor Who Don't Blink Airbrushed Sign in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by PixieVal on: January 04, 2014 06:18:58 PM
All frightening thoughts should be airbrushed in pink, shouldnt they?
Totally inspired by the craftalongs of 50 projects in 2014 and 2014 Destash-Along, I have been crafting a lot the past few days.
So we got this kids airbrush kit at a secondhand store for a couple bucks, but it didnt work. Bummer, but we could use our mouths and blow out the back of the pens and get the airbrushing to work. So we have been playing with it this weekend. I made this Doctor Who Dont Blink sign today,

The kit came with some stencils, but I had some scrapbook letters that I used cheap scrapbook tape to tape it to the canvas so I could get the verbage I wanted.

Then I just taped the letters on, and rearranged a few times until I got them exactly how I wanted, and finally did the airbrushing.

After 15 minutes I just picked all the letters off, and was left with my cool new Doctor Who sign for my wall.
With the stencils that came with the kit my daughter and I messed around and made some signs for her wall

Definitely cleared some shelf space tonight.. We picked up a kid's airbrush kit at goodwill a while back, looked like it had never been used. We finally got around to trying it tonight, and the hose was kinked, bad. My husband took the whole thing apart and tried to repair it, but it just wasn't happening. So we were able to throw out the airbrush portion into the garbage. My daughter and I were able to blow into the back of the markers and make them work as airbrush and we used up two canvases from the craft store, aka my laundry room. We were just experimenting, but she wants to hang them up in her room, so win win.

10  Simple Patchwork Curtains in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by PixieVal on: January 02, 2014 08:44:18 PM
35 12x12 Squares! You know for my first set of curtains I really could have, and should have for my sanity bought some yardage and made nice and simple curtains! These were still pretty simple, just a lot of cutting, pinning, and crawling around on the floor.

I am happy I had a clear floor in the den to rearrange these squares about 20 times until I liked the way they were. Sounds simple right? The floor sucks when you are 34 weeks pregnant, ouch!

Then I realized after I sewed all the squares together, I would have ugly rough edges all behind the curtains. We found an old fitted sheet in the closet that has ripped on the edges about 20 times and no amount of sewing can keep it together, so it was retired as curtain backing. I cut off all the elastic, placed my curtain on it, and trimmed it down to size.

Then with all my measuring I didnt factor in the fact that I would have to roll some over on the top to fit the curtain rod up top so I took what Im sure is the longest route to do this. What do you guys do? I measured all the way across the top, safety pinned it so I could try it up on the rod before I did the final sewing, and when I had it right, sewed it. If I hadnt been so close to only having enough curtain to cover the window exactly, ( oh and being a math dummy) Im sure I could have avoided the safety pins and just sewed right after measuring.
